According to the Portuguese daily newspaper, Diario de Noticias, the red and blacks have presented their first official offer of 36 million euros to Porto. An important offer for such a young player who conquered Portugal this season with many impressive performances. Key to this transfer is expected to be famous sports agent, Jorge Mendes, with whom Fassone and Mirabelli held an important meeting a few days ago to discuss the availability of several player represented by Mendes. Both parties appear to have started a strong partnership and everyone expects Andre Silva to be the first fruit of this collaboration.

The player has a release clause of 60 millions with Porto but calciomercato experts value this operation to be closed at 45 millions with Porto likely to refuse Milan’s first approach. The Portuguese side have asked some time to consider this offer and are expected to reply soon. The player is keen to the idea of joining the rossoneri and has transmitted his full availability to Milan’s duo. The powerful influence of Jorge Mendes at Porto is well known.

Fassone and Mirabelli seem to have quit Alvaro Morata with Manchester United as his mos likely destination. reports that the English giant will offer 80 million euros for his services, a big figure the rossoneri have no intention to match. From a technical point, Andre Silva would be perfect for manager Montella’s style of play. A very similar player to the Spaniard. An ideal number 9 able to participate in team movements not limiting himself only to goal scoring. A fundamental characteristic for Vincenzo Montella’s vision and one that Carlos Bacca lacks. These are necessary qualities that don’t put Porto’s attacker in advantage in comparison with the above mentioned footballers but they sure don’t leave him behind. Names like Aubameyang, Belotti or Morata may be more fascinating but Andre Silva is the easiest to sign. A sure investment for the future.
